“I joined DLR Group to deepen my understanding of environmental design and its connection to instructional design. From my time in the classroom, I realized that educators must create environments that allow learners to achieve their greatest potential. And sometimes that occurs away from the classroom, like outdoors, in a gymnasium, a museum, or at home.”

She also is active in the Association for Learning Environments, Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, and the Texas Association of School Administrators.
